|The Anderson farm plaque|
Thankfully the weather for this week is all sun, so with a collective sigh of relief, most of the farmers are finishing up. After last year with the non-stop rain, many farmers were unable to get their Spring crops planted, so we were all a bit nervous that this was going to be a repeat of last Spring.
I wanted to give you a quick tour of what our main Genesee farm looks like.

are compared to the semi truck parked at the left

Because when we do this (keep our crops free from weeds) hopefully we get to do this (see the video below). Each season farmers all over the country plant their crops with great expectations and optimism that we will get to harvest what we planted. We hope we get timely rains, no hail or other weather hazards, and we are always watching the crops so we can keep on top of insects who also like to eat our crops too.

Lastly, one of my new-found loves is Pintrest and I came across a Braided Spaghetti Bread... yumm a new found favorite for dinner. So check out my Pintrest page. I will be making this next week and promise to take a step by step picture process for the Good Farm Eats page.
As always, many thanks for stopping by and if you have questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment. So for now, I'll sign off as I need to spend some "quality time" with my backpack sprayer as the weeds are never ending. =) All my best, Gayle
